For all of you out there like me who are anxiously awaiting the fall season at Walt Disney world, you are going to be excited about what is in store for this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  This event is a limited ticketed event after regular park hours at Magic Kingdom Park within Walt Disney World.  The event sells out on many nights and offers guests a ton of great Halloween-inspired fun.  Guests are even encouraged to wear costumes (as long as they adhere to Disney guidelines).  This year’s party will take place on select nights from August 17th through October 31st, 2018.  This year, the event is expected to add a few new twists and treats to your evening.

  • Pirates of the Caribbean will have new pirates that interact with guests and will be on the search for “Gunpowder Pete.”
  • Space Mountain will get to enjoy a new soundtrack and special effects to even further enhance the attraction.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
